Emerald Coast Classic canceled, Illinois to host separate tournament

See you next year?

NCAA Basketball: Illinois at Ohio State Joseph Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

The Emerald Coast Classic originally scheduled for Nov. 27-29 has been canceled per Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports.

It’s widely regarded as one of the most competitive non-conference tournaments of the year. But it isn’t all bad news, Rothstein followed up roughly an hour later with reports that the Illini are hosting their own tournament.

Illinois Athletics has yet to confirm the news.
